How to fix your online dating profile

michelle1Through 10 years of off and on online dating, I’ve learned a thing or two about the profiles that appeal to me (can you say “hero complex?”)  Here’s my short list of what works and what doesn’t work when I’m checking out a new profile.

Things I see in online profiles that work for me

  • Men with military experience
  • Men with pictures of their dog/s
  • Firemen / EMTs
  • Volunteer work
  • Pictures taken outdoors
  • Genuine smiles
  • Mention family / kids
  • Pics with their children
  • Eagle Scouts
  • Scuba diving pictures

Things I see in online profiles that don’t work for me:

  • Men taking pictures of themselves at the gym
  • Pictures with other women
  • Men who list what they DON’T want
  • Group photos
  • Bad spelling or grammar
  • Pics with sunglasses or hats
  • No good head shots
  • Bathroom selfies
  • Professional photos
  • Drinking photos
